La Luz Center and Pets Lifeline recently collaborated to host a Pet Celebration and Wellness Clinic at La Luz Center in Boyes Hot Springs.  The Springs community welcomed the chance to bring their dogs and cats in for special care, and look forward to future clinics at the center.

Over 80 animals were served by the end of the day.  Services provided included: spay/neuter surgery (by appointment) and a drop in wellness clinic where pets were seen for flee and tick problems, heartworm vaccinations, collars and tag registration.

Pets Lifeline (http://www.petslifeline.org) headed by Executive Director Nancy King, has been providing has been providing high quality care, shelter and support to pets in the Sonoma area for over 28 years.  In an effort to further extend their outreach to the Sonoma community they have fostered a new collaboration this year with another non-profit dedicated to animal welfare, known as Compassion Without Borders.   Reps from both organizations were onsite the day of the event, providing help, guidance and assistance to all those attending. 

Compassion Without Borders is a grassroots, non-profit organization that works to bring about humane reform for the animals of Mexico and other under serviced communities through spay and neuter, humane education and outreach, international rescue efforts, and humane euthanasia programs, founded by veterinarian Dr. Christi Camblor and Juan Ramon Camblor.
